Macaroni and cheese isn’t just for kids nowadays! We’ve discovered the top five mac ‘n cheese dishes in all of Miami. More cheese, please!
1 Prime One Twelve
Prime One Twelve is often cited as one of the best restaurants in all of Miami, and for good reason too! The steakhouse is a celebrity favorite, frequented by the likes of Kim Kardashian and members of the Miami Heat. A must-try is their decadent Truffled Lobster Mac n Cheese. It's baked with freshly prepared lobster and truffle oil. Word to the wise, don't attempt to conquer the Mac on your own. This $25 side dish is meant to be shared!

2 Bulldog BBQ
Bon Appétit magazine rated Bulldog Barbecue as one of the top 10 new barbecue restaurants in the nation — talk about some major props! We love the fact that the food is so simple and yet so delicious! There are so many mouth-watering dishes on the menu that you'll have to go back more than once to get your fill. But one thing's for certain, no mater which dish you choose for your main course, be sure you order their Mac and Cheese Fixin' on the side.

3 The Capital Grille
With more than 40 locations nationwide, The Capital Grille has become a national treasure. Their mac and cheese is a treat! The dish is baked with campanelle pasta and fresh lobster meat in a blended mascarpone, havarti and Grana Padano cream cheese sauce and topped with Panko bread crumbs and grated white cheddar. Delicious.

As a relatively new addition to the Gansevoort South Beach Hotel, STK has quickly become one of Miami's hottest restaurants. But trendiness aside, another thing that keeps diners coming back is their mac and cheese. Made with delicious truffle oil, this baked dish is deliciously crusty on top and sprinkled with parmesan. But diner beware! The mac and cheese comes served in the pan that it's made in, so it stays steamy, gooey and piping hot!

Smoke't BBQ in South Miami is known for its Southern barbecue dishes, delicious ribs and slow-roasted over low-temp hickory wood and their home made barbecue sauce. But trust us, you can't go to Smoke't without trying their Baked Jalapeño Mac & Cheese. It's your typical cheesy side dish with a little kick to it because it's made with a jalapeño-jack cheese. Don't like spicy? You can also order it traditional style.
